This is lesson 3 of our free affiliate marketingmastery course playlist. So if you are new to this , click onthe “I” button here, to access all the lessons. You should also follow me on Instagram, myusername is “hk”. I take live sessions almost every alternateday where I answer all your questions, so make sure you follow me. Starting an affiliate website, was the bestdecision of my life. This is all possible because I took the mostimportant decision of starting a website and later, monetizing it. It took me many years to learn what worksand what doesn’t. But lucky for you, I have shared all my workingtips and tricks in this affiliate marketing mastery course on YouTube. So that you don’t have to waste any moneyor time, so that you can directly apply what is working. Whenever you are building a site, the firststep is to register a domain name. So what is a domain name? A domain name is an internet address. An address where internet users can accessyour website. Like the case of Facebook, “facebook.com”is the domain name for the company Facebook. And similarly, “google.com” is the domainname for the company, Google. I know it’s very simple, but still I amexplaining for all the people who don’t know it.

There can be multiple extensions of your domainname, but the popular one is “.com”. Like “google.COM… facebook.COM… or instagram.COM”. Now “.com” domain extension is more suitedfor global audience. But when you’re targeting a specific country,like the case of India. If you’re targeting the Indian audience,then instead of going for the “.com” domain extension, you will go for “.in”. Like in my case,. Because I’m targeting the Indian audience. So instead of going for a “.com” domainextension, I went for the “.in” domain extension. Similarly, let’s say if you’re targetingBrazil. Then your domain extension will be “.br”. So in my case it will be “harshl.BR”. Now after a domain name, to start a website,you need a hosting. So what is a web hosting? A web hosting is a service, where organizationsor individuals can post a website or a webpage on the internet. So just like you have Almira (Indian storagecompany) to store all your stuff, your website also needs some space to store all the filesand the folders. A website is nothing but a directory of filesand folders that are rendered through a server of a particular domain name. So whenever you are thinking of starting ablog, you need 2 things, first is the domain name, and second is the website hosting. So whenever you are buying a website hosting,you’re actually buying a space on a server. So now there are various companies that sellwebsite hosting. Like SiteGround, BlueHost, GoDaddy and HostGator. So whenever you are a buying a website hosting,you are actually buying a server space of these companies. So these companies have massive servers. So you’re actually paying a monthly fee,for access to some space on these servers. So whenever we are talking about a sharedwebhosting, you’re actually taking some server space of the server. Because taking the entire server will be reallyexpensive, so shared hosting is the solution for all the people who want to start theirsite at a very cheap price.

Now let’s talk about the free hosting. Free is always preferred by people. And they also think why pay for a hosting,when they can get it for free, right? But you have to understand one thing, there’snothing free in this world. Yes, free hosting does exist. But they have their limitations. Their drawbacks are honestly, not worth it. Especially when you’re starting an affiliatewebsite to make money. You need an extra edge to beat your competition. So if you’re starting an affiliate website,you need to invest in a paid hosting. Free hosting providers like Blogger or Wixhave certain limitations. You cannot customize your website like theway you want, there will be a subdomain instead of your primary domain, and the worst of all,there is no technical support. Since you’re starting out a new website,sooner or later you will face issues. You will face problems like installing WordPress,some plugin is not working, or maybe your website is not rendering. You need someone to talk to, someone who canhelp you. This is where the paid hosting companies comeinto play. They have support people. You can call them, you can live chat withthem and they will solve your issues within minutes. But with free hosting, nothing like that comes. So personally, after creating hundreds ofaffiliate websites, I will recommend you to stay away from the free hosting and ratherinvest a few dollars in a paid hosting plan. Since you are investing time and energy inthis affiliate website, and the ultimate goal is to make money from your website, you needto invest a few dollars for a paid hosting plan. After my 7+ years of experience in affiliatemarketing, the one recommendation that I can give you is to invest a few dollars in a paidhosting plan, so that you can beat your competition and drive much more traffic so that you canmake much more money for your website. With the paid hosting plan you will be gettingunlimited space and unlimited bandwidth. You can drive as many people to your websiteas you want. Yes, some hosting gives you an upper limitof 10 – 20,000 visitors per day. But if you are just starting out, that ismore than enough for you. Also instead of worrying about installingWordPress or other technical difficulties, which we will be talking about later in the, there’s one click installation for everything. All you have to do is click on a couple oficons and everything will be installed, automatically. And the most important reason for going fora paid hosting plan is the support staff. I can’t tell you how important this is. Even today after opening 50+ websites formyself and for my clients, still we face issues. And the one thing that I have to do is, goto the support staff. I tell them my issue and within a few minutes,everything is fixed. There have been multiple instances when mywebsites were hacked. And it was the support staff who helped meout. And also paid hosting plans used to be expensiveearlier. Now, they’re extremely cheap. And if you’re following our affiliate marketingmastery course and if you are creating an affiliate website like the way I tell you,then within few months, you will be making money from your site. So the money that you are investing in yourhosting is not an expense. Rather an investment, that will give benefitslater. So the hosting company that I recommend isSiteGround. This is the company that I am using and allmy affiliate websites are hosted in the same hosting company. And I have tried almost all hosting companiesout there. Be it GoDaddy, be it BlueHost or HostGator. I have tried them all. But my search ended at SiteGround, this hostingcompany is phenomenal. I even wrote a comprehensive article why Irecommend SiteGround, you can click on the “I” button here and check the article. Also, if you’ll be using our affiliate linkto purchase the SiteGround hosting, and send us the hosting receipt, we will be givingyou a paid theme which is worth $50. I myself use this theme for all my affiliatewebsites, because this theme is ultra lightweight, and your website will be loading at a lightningspeed. And Google use preference to fast loadingwebsites. So ranking number one on Google will be muchmore easier for you. Also I will be giving you a $50 plugin calledWP Rocket which will make your website even faster. So follow along with me in this , usemy affiliate links to purchase the hosting to claim the paid theme and plugin for free. So now let’s go into my laptop screen whereI’ll be showing you everything on how to purchase the hosting, how to configure yourtheme, how to claim these paid plugins and theme for free and how to configure your websitelike a pro. Hey guys, as I mentioned earlier that if you’reusing my affiliate link to purchase the hosting then we are giving away 2 amazing things toyou for FREE. So first is this GeneratePress theme, thistheme is already free, but its premium feature is for $49.95.

This is the theme that I use for all my affiliatewebsites, the reason is that this theme is ultra lightweight and it’s very simple touse, very user-friendly and also very Google search engine-friendly. So your website will be ranking at a muchhigher rate compared to your competitors. So we will be giving you this $50 theme forfree if you are using my affiliate link to purchase the SiteGround hosting and sendingus the hosting receipt. And the second amazing thing that we are givingis WP Rocket plugin. This plugin will make your website ultrafastand your website will be loading at lightning speed. And the best part is this plugin is so easyto use, you don’t need to have any technical knowledge on how to make a website fast. All you have to do is just activate the pluginand your website will instantly be loading in a very, very fast speed. Now one website license for this plugin isalso for $49. So we will be giving you this plugin, alongwith this premium theme for free if you’re using my affiliate link to purchase the SiteGroundhosting. So to claim this theme and plugin, all youhave to do is click on the “I” button, and also the same link is in the descriptionsection of this YouTube . So either you click on the “I” buttonand then click on the link, or you can open the description section of this , andclick the link there. And once you click the link, you will be redirectedtowards this page: “hugepedia.com/domain-name/” Now I recommend SiteGround hosting and I alsomentioned multiple reasons why I recommend SiteGround hosting and why all my websitesare hosted at SiteGround hosting, so you can check the article here, “My Top 10 Reasons”. Where I have given you a comprehensive reasonwhy I have recommended SiteGround hosting. And why this is the best hosting for any Amazonaffiliate website. Now in the niche research of this playlist,I showed you how to look for the perfect low competition, high-profitable niche. So I have decided to go into the DSLR niche,just for the test purpose of showing you how to create a website and how to optimize itin a perfect manner, so I’ll be creating a DSLR related website. So let’s search for a good domain name forthis. I’m searching for domain name, “bestdslrindia.in”Let’s see if it’s available or not. Sometimes it takes a little longer to searchfor it so just, wait for it for a few seconds. So the “bestdslr…in” is not available,it’s already taken. So let’s try some other variation. The reason why I’m going with the “.in”domain extension is because I want to target the Indian market. If you go for the “.com” then you willbe targeting the global audience and also the US market. So, if you’re targeting the Indian marketgo for the “.in” domain extension, if you’re targeting the US market then go forthe “.com” extension. You can also go to the “My Tool” section,where I recommend all the tools that I use to run my online businesses. And the first thing is definitely SiteGround-you can also click here to visit the SiteGround hosting, so once you visit SiteGround hostingall you have to do is… so there are 3 plans. There’s a StartUp plan, the GrowBig planand there’s a GoGeek plan. The primary difference between the 3 is thatwith the StartUp plan, is the cheapest but only 1 website can be built on a single hosting. So let’s say after a couple of months youwant to create 2 or 3 more websites. Then for every new website you have to buya new hosting. So that’s the drawback of StartUp plan. But if you go with the GrowBig plan, thenyou can create unlimited websites on a single hosting. Like it says, it’s unlimited websites. Also the bandwidth of this hosting is reallyhigh. So the website can easily handle 25,000 visitorsper month.

But since I’ll be giving you this amazingWP Rocket plugin and also this amazing lightweight theme, and if you’re installing both thesethemes on your hosting, then you can easily handle 100,000 visitors per month. Because I’ve been using SiteGround for manyyears now, I know… and I have used GrowBig plan as well. And my website was easily able to handle 100,000visitors per month. So the one I recommend is GrowBig. You can go for GoGeek, but it will be tooexpensive for you. And also if you’re just a beginner thenGoGeek is not suited for you, rather go with the GrowBig plan. So click here and get plan. So now you have to find a new domain name,if you’ve seen my niche of the affiliate marketing playlist where I showed you howto find a low competition high profitable niche for your website, then I showed youvarious ways to find a good niche for your Amazon affiliate website. I have decided to go into the DSLR niche,because the profitability is really high. Yes, the competition is also high, but I havea team of people who will be doing SEO for the website. I have decided to go into the DSLR niche forthe website, just for the test purpose, because I won’t be scaling this website rather thisis just to show you how to create an Amazon affiliate website. So let’s search for a good domain name. “bestdslr…” I’ll go with the “.in” domain extension. Because- since if you’re targeting the Indianaudience then go for the “.in” extension it will help you in SEO. If you are targeting the US or the globalmarket then go for the “.com”. But don’t go for “.in” or “.org”etc. Either go for the country specific domainextension or go for the global “.com”. So let’s see that- whether it’s availableor not. One recommendation that I can give you isin your domain name, make sure you have your category or the niche of your website or thekeyword. So my category or the niche of my websiteis DSLR, so I’ve added the word “DSLR” on the domain name. Because this will really help in the SEO orthe search engine optimization of your website later. So if your website is about guitars, makesure you have “guitar” in the domain name. Like “bestguitar.in” or something likethat. So now, I’ll fill in all these informationand buy this hosting plan. One thing that you have to keep in mind thatyou- there’s an option in SiteGround the “SG Site Scanner”, you don’t need it. And apart from that, for the data center,take the data center that is closer to your target audience. So our audience will be in India, and Singaporeis the closest data center. This is where all your files are hosted.

But if you’re targeting the US audiencethen go for the Chicago data center because it will be closer to your US audience. Similarly if you are going for Europe or anythingelse, then you can select the appropriate data center. Since we’ll be targeting India, I’ll begoing for Singapore. So what I’ll do is I’ll fill-in all theseinformation and purchase this hosting, and then I’ll restart this . So I purchased the domain name, “bestdslr.in”So now let’s configure the domain name, configure the website, install WordPress andset it up like a pro. And I’ll also show you how to claim thispaid theme for free and also this paid plugin for free. So in the email that you used to purchasethis hosting, you must have received an email from SiteGround, so open that email. So as you can see I have received an emailfrom SiteGround here, “sales receipt” so you open it. And to claim the paid theme and plugin forfree, all you have to do is forward this email to my email ID, which is “contact@hugepedia@gmail.com”And just write down, “affiliate hosting receipt”… or rather also add the word“Amazon”. Affiliate hosting receipt- and send it tome. Once we see this hosting receipt and we seethat the sales has been generated from our affiliate link, I will give you the paid themeand the paid plugin and I’ll also show you how to install both of these on your theme. Go to your SiteGround account, open it. And now, there are three options. “Start a new website” “transfer a website”“don’t need help now”. So start a new website, we don’t have to. Transfer a website if you’re using- if youalready have a website on a different host like GoDaddy Host, HostGater or BlueHost. I highly recommend you guys to transfer toSiteGround because this will drastically improve the free traffic of your website, that isthe SEO of your website, and will drive much more traffic. I don’t need any help right now becauseI will be showing you everything, how to setup manually. And you don’t need this SG site scannerit’s not worth it, so confirm, and I confirm… and complete setup. So this is the backend of your SiteGroundhosting so this is how it looks, there’s many options here you can increase more- youcan upgrade the hosting, here’s the billing, here you can access the support tab if youhave any queries and few perks as well. So the first thing is you have to go to “MyAccount” section. So here’s the entire detail about your hostingaccount and domain name. So I have my domain name “bestdslr.in”here, and these are the other details regarding my hosting. Like my IP address, my DNS, etc. So all you have to do is click here “Goto cPanel”, and “yes, proceed”. Now these are the details of your entire hostingaccount. Like the domains you have added, the files-you can access the files here. You can access any customization that youneed to do on your website on your hosting, you have to do it from this cPanel account. So the first step is- as you can see thatyou have purchased the GrowBig plan on SiteGround and this is the main server of your SiteGroundand the date and other information. Now as you can see that SiteGround hostinghas this lock here. It means that the website is hosted on a “https”server.

Now you must have seen that Google has comeup with various other announcements that they are preferring https websites compared tohttp. So if you want more SEO traffic, more organictraffic to your website you need to install a “https”. Now other hosting provider sell it for anothermonthly charge, but in SiteGround, it comes for free. So all you have to do is “Ctrl + F” (find),search for “let”… let’s find where’s Let’s Encrypt. Okay, here it is. So… click here on Let’s Encrypt. Here you can see the domain name, “Let’sEncrypt SSL” So you have to install it. So select the domain name, it is already selected,then click on “install”. It is added in the installation cue and withinfew minutes it will be installed automatically. So let’s go back to the cPanel and now it’stime to install the WordPress on your domain name. So way to install WordPress is, click hereon WordPress. Click on install… you don’t have to- keepit on 5.1.1 itself and the protocol you would want “https://www.” Because you just installed the https protocolon your website. This is the domain name, directory you’llkeep it empty. For the site name I’ll just add the domainname as of now “Best DSLR”. For the site description, we can add somethinglike, “Best camera reviews on the internet”. Enable multisite, no… admin- this is theadmin username and password, you can keep it anything. So I’ll keep it like “test” here. And for the password, I’ll keep it “test123” Obviously you should have a different username. And make the password extremely strong becauseWordPress is prone to getting hacked. So make sure your password is really strongas well. I have just used it for test purpose. And for the admin email, add your main email. Which will be used… so any communicationor any contact form submission from your website will be redirected to this particular address. So I’ll be adding my email address- samethat I used to purchase this hosting. Select language, English… limit login attempts(loginizer), yes you would want this plugin. And part from that, these are the optionsthat you have to do. And click on, install. Oh, the password must be- see they remindedme. So let’s add… test_0709 maybe. Okay, it’s good under 50, it’s good with50 now. So test_0709, let’s install it now. So now the WordPress is getting installed. So guys, WordPress is installed now, let’sopen the website and see if everything is fine or not. Yes, the website is opening correctly. And also you can see that we have this lockthat means that the https is perfectly installed. So that’s one good benefit of buying theSiteGround hosting that you get it- that you can get the https certificate for free. And to install the backend of your websitethat is the WordPress backend, the WordPress dashboard, all you have to do is add thisword “wp-admin” in the domain name of your website. So I’ll just click here and this is thebackend. So, this is the backend of your website, thisis where you will be customizing your entire theme, adding plugins, changing the structureof your website, changing the look of your website, installing the recommended plugins,themes etc. and everything else. We will be going through all of that in thelatter part of this . Now here you clicked on this particular URLand you were automatically logged into your WordPress dashboard, but usually the usernameand the password that we created to install the WordPress, you have to enter it. In order to access this particular dashboard. So I’ll just give you an overview of thedashboard, how it works if you’re new to this. So click here, “don’t show this again”. Also there are few things that you need todo, okay, so I’ll just give you a general overview. This is the homepage of your dashboard, sothis will- you can customize it if you want as well. So this is the post section, this is whereyou will be adding the articles for your website. So “All Posts” are all the published postsand the draft posts as well. “Add New” is whenever you’ll be addinga new article. So you can click here, and you can add a title,you can add a description and everything else for your article. Like this will be title, this is the descriptionand the text size, color setting, advance categories, etc. Similarly, you have the categories. You can also segment the categories, likeif- you have- my website is about DSLR, then I can create multiple categories like camera,lenses, camera accessories, etc. And whenever I am writing an article I canassign a particular category to that article.

So that the segmentation is proper on thewebsite. Similarly you can add particular tags as well. Whatever s you’re uploading, whateverimages you are uploading it will be in the media section here. In the pages section you will be creatingpages like “About Us” or “Contact Me” etc… the “Terms & Conditions” the disclaimer,etc. These are the pages that we will be creating. Comment section is where all the comment sectionswill show. If anyone comments, you can moderate themas well. You can approve them, you can delete them,so all the comments will be showed here. Plugins section, we will be going throughthat in a few seconds. I’m just showing you all the recommendedplugins that you have to install. Users is all the users that you want to createif you want to give access of your WordPress dashboard to multiple people. You can create moderators, you can createeditors, you can create administrators, so all of that… Similarly tools is for- if you already havesome files you want to import or if you want to export the configuration of your dashboardyou can export it as well. You won’t be using this particular optionvery often. Setting part will definitely will be- let’sstart on the setting part here. So there are few things that you need to doon the setting part. First of all add a proper tagline, your taglineshould have your primary keyword. So let’s say your website is about DSLRcamera review then you must enter “best camera review on the internet”. My main keyword “best camera review” or“best dslr” is already on the site tagline, this helps in the SEO part. This is automatically filled, you don’thave to worry much about it. So I’ll just save it. Then go into the writing section. Default post category and categorized- justkeep it the way it is. You don’t have to change anything in that. Just change it to “Summary” here and nevercheck this option, it should always be unchecked otherwise your website won’t be gettingindex. So just change from full text to summary. Click save changes. Go to the discussion tab, you don’t haveto change anything here. In the permalinks section you have to makesure that the post name is selected. This is extremely important for correct SEOof your website. So make sure you change it to post name andsave changes. So now that you have saved your settings…now let’s install the theme that I was recommending you earlier. So now that you have saved your setting nowlet’s install a beautiful theme on your website which is lightweight. And as I was saying earlier if you are usingmy affiliate link to purchase your SiteGround hosting and sending us the hosting receipt,we will be giving you this paid theme for free, this GeneratePress for free. So all you have to do is, after you send usthe hosting receipt, on the same email I will reply you the files of this theme. So what you have to do is go to themes. Appearance, themes section. Click on “add new”, “upload theme”,“choose file” and scroll “generatepress”, select, open and install now. I will be giving you the RAR file in the replyof the email on the hosting receipt that you sent me. Once this theme is installed, click “activate”. Now the theme is active, let’s see how itlooks. Yes, the website theme is active now. And also, to get the premium features of thistheme you also need to install one more thing. So click on plugins, click on add new, uploadplugin, choose file, I will be sending you this particular RAR file “gp-premium”click on open and click on install now. And click on activate plugin. After you do this you will also be able toaccess the premium features of this plugin like all the premium modules that come up. So this way you’ll be able to get the $50theme for free. I’ll also be giving you the license keyof this theme. All you have to do is copy the license keyhere and save. And this way you’ll be able to receive theupdates of this theme in the future as well. So I won’t be going through each of themodule that you want to activate or deactivate. Few things that I recommend is definitelythe blog section, activate it. Also activate the copyright- and this dependson you what kind of functionality you want from your theme. The more modules you activate, the sloweryour website will get. So try to keep your modules as low as possibleand only keep the necessary ones. So to check the overall features of the moduleall you have to do is go to “generatepress.com” and see the overview of each moduleand see if you want it or not. So now let’s install the WP Rocket thatI was telling you about. How to make your website extremely fast, soif you are using my affiliate link to purchase the hosting and sending us the hosting receipt. So we will be giving you the RAR file andthe license key for this particular theme. Along with that I will also be giving youthe license key and the RAR file for the WP Rocket plugin. So to install this plugin go to plugins > addnew > upload plugin > choose file… I will be sending you this RAR file, selectit > open > install now > activate plugin. Now the thing is whenever you are buying aSiteGround hosting, it automatically installs a particular plugin called SG Optimizer, thishelps in making your website faster. But I have seen in my experience that wheneveryou are installing WP Rocket, WP Rocket makes your website much faster than the SG Optimizer. And there’s a clash of interest, so usuallyI deactivate the SG Optimizer plugin and only keep the WP Rocket. Click on the- click on “clear cache”. Go to WP Rocket, click on settings, so nowlet me tell you the perfect settings for this WP Rocket plugin. Go to cache section, enable caching for mobiledevices, keep it this way. File optimization, select “Minify HTML”“Remove query strings…” “Minify CSS” activate minify c- “CombineCSS…” So activate everything. “Minify JavaScript” “Load JavaScriptdeferred” “Combine JavaScript” Now these are all the options that will makeyour website, extremely fast. Save it, let’s see if the website looksfine or not, or if there’s an issue- it looks fine. So no issue on that. Let’s go to media, click enable for images,enable for iframes and s, replace YouTube iframe with preview images, disable- savechanges. Preload, it’s fine. Advanced rules- no we don’t need it. Database, looks fine. CDN etc… image optimization, no you don’t need it. So this is the primary configuration of WPRocket. So that’s the best part of using WP Rocket. You just have to press a few buttons and everythingis configured automatically. Whenever you want to increase the websitespeed- the website loading speed of your blog, it becomes extremely difficult because youneed to know so many advanced things like this minify, preload, CSS optimization andJavaScript optimization and it becomes really confusing for beginners. But whenever you are using a WP Rocket plugin,all you have to do is just like what we did a few minutes earlier, you just press a fewbuttons and everything is perfect. Now our website must be loading at lightningspeed. So let’s see the loading speed of our websiteon a good- let’s see the loading speed of our website. Ctrl + V (paste), I’ll select a server whichis closest to India that is Asia Japan. So Pingdom is currently testing the website. So let’s see how long it takes. So as you can see the website took only 1.14sload time and the performance grade was capital A 98, that’s really, really good. And the page size is only 24.2KB.

So here the website is loading in lightningspeed but this is only because of WP Rocket plugin. So that’s the power of WP Rocket. So now let’s talk about making this websitelook nice. All you have to do is go to the appearancesection and go to the customize section. This is where you will be able to access allthe settings related to your website theme. Changing the title, changing the widgets andall of that. So let’s go to the widget section. Right side bar… so I don’t want the recentcomments section, I’ll remove that. Recent posts, maybe I’ll keep it. Archive I’ll remove. Categories, I’ll remove. Meta, I’ll remove. Search, I’ll keep that. So make sure you publish everything otherwiseit won’t be saved. Let’s go to the footer widget. Whether you want to keep the footer widgetor not. And the best part is you can click anywhereto access the edit of that particular area of the theme. So I just click here and I can see that Iam in the copyright area now. Okay, similarly you can configure anythingrelated to your blog. Now I won’t be gong through each and everyoption of the blog otherwise it will take at least an hour more, just to configure thewebsite. And I’ll keep this part unto you, on howto do it. So I want you guys to read the documentationof this particular theme, and go through each option and- like here you can select the logoof your website and the site icon and everything. The layouts, the color, the typography… I won’t be giving you one specific way todo it because then all the people ing this course will make the same typeof website, I don’t want that. So I recommend you guys to read the documentation. It’s pretty simple, it’s not that difficultif you have created a website and- it won’t be- and also there are a lot of YouTube sregarding the GeneratePress theme. So you can all of them and configureyour website with the way and the look you want. And also make sure you share your websitelook on the Facebook group. Learn Digital Marketing with huger group, and I’ll give you feedback on your website and in your articles and everything. So make sure you are active in the group aswell. So apart from that, you’ll also need toinstall a couple more plugins which will really help you in your website. So go to plugins > add new > Yoast SEO. Install this Yoast SEO plugin this is extremelyimportant, and also activate the plugin. And you also have to add one more plugin,that is contact form. So click on- “contact form”, and installthis plugin as well. And activate this plugin as well. So go to SEO on the general section here. You don’t want text link counter, XML sitemaps…you don’t want this “Rye Integration” because it’s not worth it. And apart from that, just click on save changes. Search appearances, so make sure in the postsection- settings for post URLs it looks something like this. Go to the “Tax” section category in thesearch results- you don’t want the category in the search results. Because that is not good for SEO. Make sure you disable it to “no”. And content URLs, remove the categories prefix…so just click on save changes. Similarly archives, you don’t want the authorarchives to be in the search results. You don’t want that, that’s not good foryour SEO. Data archive, you don’t want that. Special pages…it’s fine. Click on save changes. Similarly, media and the content type… let’ssee, post URL- that’s fine. Media it’s fine, taxonomies don’t want,archives… breadcrumbs… and general. So this is what you need to do for the searchconsole. And anything else you don’t need much ofthat. So this is the setting of the Yoast SEO. And… Now there are few mandatory webpages thatyou need on your website, whenever you are creating an Amazon affiliate website. So now I’ll just- Oh yeah, guys I have forgottento mention one thing. That when you go to the themes customization,like I mentioned- showed you earlier, go to the theme customization > widget section > footerbar and add a widget here. And this widget will be text type. And just write this in your widget. So here it says that BestDslr.in is a participantin the Amazon Services LCC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designedto provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising fees etc. So in this particular- just replace the “BestDslr.in”here and here, with your domain name, whatever you choose. So this is a mandatory requirement for Amazonassociate account, so whenever you are creating an account you need this on all pages of yourwebsite. That is the reason we have added it to ourfooter bar. So that it is visible in all the pages. Otherwise your account will be banned. So make sure you do this and click on publish. So now let us go to the pages section here. You also need a few mandatory pages on yourwebsite. So we’ll create a few pages. So the first page is “About (Your WebsiteName)”, or you can directly create an “about” page. And write few sentences here like what yourwebsite is about. Like for me the website is about premierecamera reviews, and how is our research process… like, what makes us different. So a little story about yourself. And you can also check other Amazon affiliatewebsite on the internet and see what kind of permission they have about the “about”section. Apart from that you also need a “terms ofservice” page. You’ll need a “privacy policy” page,and a disclaimer page, right? And the line that we copied earlier in thecustomized section, also make sure that this particular line is also added here in thedisclaimer section as well. So all these pages like about section, termsof service this- terms of service, privacy policy and disclaimer, you can create it afterlooking at the various other- because almost all websites have it. So just look at the various pages of variouswebsites, and just get an idea and create these three pages but make sure that the linethat you have added here is also here in the disclaimer section because this really helpsfrom not getting your Amazon account banned from the Amazon Associate account. And also make sure all the links of thesepages are publicly shown on the footer bar of your theme. Because these pages should be directly accessiblebecause whenever your account is getting approved, the Amazon Associate center will be checkingwhether these pages are available or not. So make sure these pages are also availablein the footer menu. So this is what you need to do to configureyour website. So these are the few pages that you need tocreate. Now you need some menu items, so go to themenu section here. And here you can create multiple menus. So I can create the top menu here. So you can create it to be the primary menu…so let’s first create some categories. So let’s say you have a category name likeDSLR. So create new category, you might also haveDSLR accessories. I’m not sure whether the spelling is corrector not. But I’ll just keep it right now. And then you’ll have some Lenses, right. So add this category. So this way you’ll have multiple categoriesto segment your content, with these categories, you can create multiple menu items. So we have- I have created this Top Menu,and I’ll add this to primary menu. I will select the categories that I have created. I’ll add DSLR, accessories- and add to menu. This way you can create a menu item. You can also create a home menu item. Like, I can create a home menu item, and addthe URL here. Okay… then add to menu. And keep it to the top. Once you save the menu, and now when you’llvisit your website, you’ll have these menu items. Like Home, DSLR, DSLR Accessories and Lenses,etc. You can create many more items and if you’reusing GeneratPress then you’ll also have the option for submenu if you enable thatparticular element, right?
